Ximo Puig did not hide his discomfort yesterday that the regional and municipal election campaign is adopting a first-round tone for the future of the leaders of the PSOE and the PP, leaving in second place the issues that directly affect citizens at regional and local. A strategy, that of creating a national "framework", which especially benefits the PP, which has made the slogan "throw Sánchez" a main element of its agitation for the 28M campaign.
"Raising these elections to a national category is distorting these elections and it is unfair," warned the president before pointing out that "the characteristics of national politics have nothing to do with this 28M." "Now we do not play if Sánchez or Feijóo is going to be president, that is not the scenario," he added.
The PSPV candidate for the Generalitat Valenciana stressed that in these elections "the Valencian Community is at stake if it continues with the economic and social progress of these years or if what was the paradigm of corruption and massive cuts anchored in 'neoThatcherism' returns ' that was tried to be implanted here".
In front of the journalists, in the presentation of his policies to reinforce Equality between men and women, he remarked that "the general elections will be at the end of the year, now we are debating the Generalitat as an instrument of self-government in a decentralized country". He criticized that the "PPVox" tandem does not have a clear alternative for this autonomy "because it knows that it cannot debate and it resorts to the hypothetical illegalization of Bildu that has nothing to do with the Valencian Community." In this regard, he added that "no regional government has been closer to the victims of terrorism than this one."
Regarding the polls, Puig has indicated that "they are used as a throwing weapon" and has pointed to those of the Greek elections this Sunday, which predicted a tie between Nea Dimokratía and Syriza and "it does not seem that they have been very successful".
Despite the fact that he has rejected "doing counter-demoscopy", the candidate has indicated that the result "will have more to do with the qualitative vote" and has remarked that the current Council is the best valued by citizens since 2007. In this sense, he has indicated that their "trackings" do not match the polls and that they choose to be "the first political force".
